The first episode of Telltale's The Wolf Among Us will launch this Friday, October 11 on Xbox 360 and PC. Telltale says it is still confirming the game's PS3 release date, which is "expected to be just a few days after the initial Xbox 360 and PC releases go live."

The game has players guiding Sheriff Bigby through a section of New York City called Fabletown. The five-episode season is based on Bill Willingham's Fables comic book series, which features numerous characters from fairy tales and their struggles.

The Wolf Among Us' episodes cost $4.99 each. Players can purchase a season pass on Xbox Live granting access to all episodes for $14.99 – but that's in addition to the $4.99 cost of the first episode. The season can also be pre-purchased on Steam for 10 percent off ($22.49) until the first episode hits on Friday.
